We joined our current fertility clinic in 2018. I egg shared with them and got pregnant early 2019, miscarried July, and then went through NHS. Returning to the original clinic as I really thought they were great, and I wanted to do egg sharing again, they then said my AMH had halved in a year and I am no longer eligible for egg sharing. I asked if I could repeat the AMH test as that seemed incredibly unusual (and they agreed it was super strange), but they said repeating the test would be pointless. So I looked to do self-funded.
This resulted signing up to a 2 year unlimited deal with Access Fertility. After signing up in November, the clinic said I have a potential polyp that needs to be removed. This wasn't a service the clinic provided so I went and found another clinic and had a hysteroscopy. No polyp was found. Mildly annoying, but I know they need to be thorough about these things. Ready to get on with our next round of IVF!
Clinic confirmed that we can start IVF and don't need another doctor's appointment as we came in October to get the treatment plan done etc. Clinic has since decided we need a nurse appointment, though, which I was concerned is going to put us back another cycle (as my period is due before then), and it's extra money and an hour and a half drive away. Annoying, but oh well.
Now, though, I have rung the clinic to see if we can get drugs sent out before this so I can start this coming cycle, but they apparently have a new system where they have one egg collection day a month (I think because of staffing issues) and they are booked up for February, so my egg collection won't be until March. They put everyone on the pill to line up their cycles for this one egg collection day, which doesn't seem great. In the meantime, that is absolutely months of no progress under Access Fertility deal, and seems a really long time to wait. Am I being unreasonable?!?!
Sorry for the long post! xxx
